HTC Edge: The world's first quad-core smartphone Multiple sources are reporting on the leaked pictures and specs of the upcoming HTC Edge, the world's first quad-core smartphone.
The device will have a massive 4.7-inch screen, 720p resolution, be just 10mm thick and run on Android 4.0.

Under the hood, the device has 1GB RAM, a Tegra 3 processor at 1.5Ghz, a backlit 8MP camera with a 28-millimeter f/2.2 lens, 32GB storage, Beats Audio and Bluetooth 4.0.

Additionally, the device will run the updated Sense UI which adds the HTC Listen music store, the HTC Read bookstore, the HTC Play multiplayer gaming hub and the HTC Watch HD movie rental portal.

The device will have support of the very fast 21Mbps HSDPA+ "4G" network but no LTE.

Speculation has the device launching in March.

I don't think it'd be at 1.5 ghz already. What will they do in 2013? 1 ghz tegra 3 seems likely. You wouldn't want to have a terrible battery life. Still bravo to htc if there the first quad-core phone.

To think I was almost considering another brand :P

Now that my GPS started working after almost a year on my HD2, I'm a loyalist :)

In regards to battery life, not sure if you have read up much on the Tegra 3s but it actually has a 5th core, if memory serves me right, that is power gated so that the phone can switch to this core if it is in a state where it dopes not need all 4 cores running.
